It's basketball season in the fourth book of this highly illustrated middle grade series from the nationally syndicated cartoonist of "In the Bleachers," starring a kid who plays the same position in every sport: benchwarmer.
Steve is King of the Bench. No brag. It's just a fact. And this season, Steve and his athletically challenged best friends Joey and Carlos--along with super athlete Becky O'Callahan--are joining the Mighty Plumbers basketball team. But instead of playing on the court, Steve is waiting on the sidelines to perform his top-secret ritual that turns the tide of every game in an instant.
Why is it a secret? Well, big, drooly duh, everyone knows it's a strict rule when selling a book not to blurt out the whole juicy plot!
Perfect for fans of Timmy Failure and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, King of the Bench is an ode to teammates, underdogs, and benchwarmers everywhere.
